Right on the water and in the heart of historic Lahaina, Kimo’s brings you and your o’hana (Hawaiian for family) a casual, completely Maui dining experience. Renowned our “postcard” views of Lanai and Molokai, we offer a menu featuring fresh Hawaiian fish, prime rib, prime steaks and the original Hula Pie, Kimo’s has been a Maui must-do for over 30 years. The upstairs main dining room shows the architectural influence of New England on the former whaling port, with koa-lined walls, missionary-style furnishings and maritime memorabilia. After dinner, Kimo’s lanai becomes a very cool hotspot for tropical cocktails and Hawaiian music. Live entertainment is offered on weekends and select week nights.

Great view. Good service. Great drinks. Good appetizers. I thought this was “enough said!” But, I have to type at least 100 characters; so, go enjoy a great happy hour.

We wanted somewbere a little more casual but still good food. Kimo’s was perfect. The prime rib wasn’t the fanciest I have ever had but was delicious. And we were beyond full with all of the sides as well. The service was great and fun.

This is my son and daughter-in-law's favorite place to eat in Lahaina. The fish is caught fresh daily so the menu changes based on the catch. The fish preparations typically come with rice, but they graciously substituted potatoes for the rice. The service is exceptional....More

Even with reservations, the place gets packed. The menu has a good selection of food. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu & how dishes were prepared. Because it gets crowded, it was noisy & difficult to carry on a conversation at our table....More

If you are on your honeymoon, I would drive 20 minutes north to Merriman’s near Kapalua Bay. It is truly one of the prettiest points to eat on the island and the food is way better than Mommas Fish House. We were there last... More
